    London has changed a bit since I was there last…

  3. Lazy says:

    I just lost several teeth.

  4. liquidindian says:

    My thoughts:

    Ha ha ha look at this gaudy piece of rubbish OH WOW FARMING.

    I mean, who wouldn’t want a Harvest Moon MMO?

  5. Theory says:

    My god, those things can speak!

  6. SanguineLobster says:

    See, you get into a game like that and wham! the first patch nerfs the sparkly stick and overpowers the smiley scarecrow.

  7. kenoxite says:

    I think it looks almost identical to World of Warcraft.

    It’s more like EVE, without the ships.

  8. Bobsy says:

    You know, I always thought Hello Kitty was a dude.

    It’s that Mitchell and Webb sketch that does it.

    “You’re… you’re Hello Kitty!”
    “Yes, that’s right. Er… ‘hello’.”

  9. SteveTheBlack says:

    Doesn’t hold a candle to Hello Kitty: Roller Rescue. Now THAT was a game…

  10. Del Boy says:

    Is that Diablo III?

  11. Ian says:

    @ Del Boy: You’ve just been caught out by that colour scheme.

  12. Feet says:

    I think this game is cute and lovely and I want to hug it.

    I do not want to play it, however.

  13. AndrewC says:

    Hello Groomer.

  14. Cynic says:

    The voice over made me fell nauseous.

    The cynic in me thinks that peadophiles are high-fiving each other all over the world.

  15. Flint says:

    Good god why do I actually have the whim to try this out?

  16. Schtee says:

    Yeah, chilled to my bones by the Hello Kitty voice. Was that the Dome/the O2 I saw for London?

    And yeah, nice to see the words “Massively Multiplayer” used by marketing. Not often you see that any more.

  17. shinygerbil says:

    Ayup. That’s new territory for paedophiles, right there.

  18. James says:

    They lure you in with the “Oh, they’re so cuddly!” atmosphere and then BAM! Eaten by a Hello Grue.

  19. Duncan says:

    They better have a ******* good chat filter on that ************.

  20. Andrew says:

    Every game is all space marines and shit now. :(

  21. James T says:

    The enemies’ team tactics look phenomenal.

  22. Jochen Scheisse says:

    …and I here have an exclusive preview for DOW: Kutehammer:

    In stores nanoseconds after Halo Kitty 5

  23. monkeymonster says:

    I think I saw a couple of tyranid hiding in the farm. Try training them as a pet! “What do you mean “Eat everyone” that’s not something I can do, do fancy a game or perhaps lets solve a new puzzle”

  24. Cope says:

    Oh dear… I forsee a 4chan invasion.

  25. aquazombie says:

    This could be it everyone. The WoW killer we are all waiting for. Seriously, I am going to buy this game at least 4 times. Probably gonna play an Ultra Cuddly Killer Bear, or a Supercute Vicious Velociraptor trainer.

  26. CryingMinotaur says:


    (Jochen, that must be coming out right after the Hello Kitty Patch for Soulstorm: link to exlibrismortis.org)

  27. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    i’m in ur mmorpgz
    hoarding ur hugz ^_______^

  28. Jochen Scheisse says:

    Oh god, yes! It will be 4chan territory. In the end, there will probably only sweaty pedos and the /b/ crowd exchanging lolicon pictures under girl aliases, while all the real little girls play Sims 3 or something.

  29. Hogni Thor says:

    This needs more Cthulhu imo

  30. Mike says:

    Anyone ever seen the cartoon version of Hello, Kitty? It was basically a thinly veiled lesson in how to be a Good Child, including “Listen To Your Parents Whilst On Public Transport” and “Rules Are There For A Reason, And That Includes The Park You Disobedient Feline, You”

    I can only hope this lives up to the dream.

  31. Disco Fever says:

    @Hogni Thor: This. So much.

  32. Kazz says:

    I heard it has the depth of Eve, can’t wait for this!

  33. Ian says:

    I for one intend to sell every other game I have so I can devote all my time to this.

  34. Valentin Galea says:

    I for one welcome our new Hello Kitty MMO overlords!

  35. Rudolf says:

    1) i want the teletubbies to do the german synchro voiceovers
    2) what better way to evade game critics than targeting babies? They just look at the “cute” colours, right….right?

  36. Bobsy says:

    Haha. I like the Hello Kitty Millenium Dome. Will there be a Hello Kitty Peter Mandleson inside?

  37. television priest says:

    This will only be worth playing when it is driven by the awesome power of the cell processor.

  38. Sam says:

    Nuke it from Orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

  39. phuzz says:

    I think I need to go stare at some week old roadkill just to get my cuteness threshold back down to normal levels again.
    Oh, and isn’t this free?

  40. 18Rabbit says:

    Why were there no US cities listed in the sparkling tour of major cities that sparkle and are magically right next to each other? Des Moines is easily as sparkly as Paris.

    Will HKMMO (which sounds more badass than the actual name) implement the trophy system too?

  41. Geoff says:

    Ooh, a perfect excuse to deploy the following image:

  42. Pirate0r says:

    What? no “Hello Kitty Island Adventure” game?

  43. Grill says:

    Looks awfully similar to Disney’s surprisingly good and awfully-safe joke-’em’-up MMO Toontown, which I remember reviewing Back In The Day, but with many more minigames. Is Toontown even still going?

  44. Arnulf says:

    Suddenly I’m craving marshmallows.

  45. davidalpha says:

    I’d play this before WOW

  46. Servitor says:

    I need to play this.

  47. Noc says:

    Oh, man, this thing sucks. Samri Digital doesn’t care about the real Hello Kitty fans. They’ve completely dispensed with the spare, minimalistic style that made Hello Kitty so great to begin with, and replaced it with a stupid, mainstream clutter-fest designed to pander to the lowest common denominator.

    Hello Kitty is about hugs. But you can’t hug anybody in this game! They’ve taken the Hello Kitty name and shat on it because they don’t care about the fans, and just want to use the name to sell a bunch of stupid minigames to consoletard kids who’ve just come from playing their Wii.

    . . .

    In all seriousness, though, I’d play totally a Harvest Moon MMO.

  48. Nick says:

    “What do you think? I think it looks almost identical to World of Warcraft.”

    Thankfully I don’t think there are any Angry Hello Kitty men.

  49. Larington says:

    Why hasn’t the sky fallen, yet?

    So. Much. Pink. I think my eyes have spontaneously shut down in protest.
